Direct specialty care for surgical services is when patients pay physicians directly for their services, bypassing insurance companies and other third-party payers. A key proponent of direct pay for providers and patients is that it allows for more transparency in pricing, encourages competition among providers, and gives patients more control over their healthcare decisions.

At Smith Medical we are focused on transparent and upfront price tags for all services we provide at our surgical facility. From spine surgery to ENT procedures, it doesn’t matter, whatever we are providing to the public, we ensure patients that they will understand the cost before they begin the process of care. 

For physicians looking to join a meaningful healthcare practice that proactively drives down prices and openly states costs, Smith Medical is the surgery center to join. Direct specialty care is the future of surgery.

How Smith Medical Works

Focused on how to progress the future of health care and provide advanced treatments through medical care for patients, Smith Medical’s goal is also to provide a better medical industry to work for providers. 

With traditional insurance-based payment models, it can be difficult for patients to determine the true cost of a procedure, as prices can vary greatly depending on the provider and insurance coverage. By paying physicians directly, patients can have a clearer understanding of the costs involved and may be able to shop around for the best price.

This transparency leads to increased competition among providers, driving down prices and improving overall quality of care. It is a healthcare model that is different from your typical fee-for-service and insurance billing practice at Smith Medical. Our practice is joined by all different types of surgeons from orthopedic specialists, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists, or urologists, Smith Medical employs them all. 

Our Goals at Smith Medical

Our goal at Smith Medical is to curate a selection of high-quality physicians who are talented, inspired, and motivated to help patients who want to undergo life-improving surgeries. At the heart of effective healthcare is a collaborative effort between patients- and healthcare facilities. 

In order to provide a better and more impactful healthcare environment in which patients feel comfortable, we are leaving behind traditional healthcare plans to provide an open, and transparent surgical system that provides better-quality services at lower prices.
